Check out our FAQ for what to wear (no bare feet), information for new climbers and everything else you might be wondering!

Top Rope Climbing:

To climb on our roped routes, you will need to climb with a partner. One person climbs while the other manages the safety rope (belaying). Children under the age of 13 years are too young to ‘belay’ and require an adult or partner 13 years or older.

Sometimes it is hard to find a partner – our classes are a great way to meet other climbers, or you could try posting a request for a climbing partner on our Facebook page, or on the local outdoor climbing association’s Facebook page (RANQ Club).


People without climbing partners, or parents who do not want to ‘belay’ will love our auto-belays! Once safely attached to the auto-belay, (which is covered during the safety induction) climb away! The Auto-belay will safely lower the climber back down to the ground when they let go of the wall. Children may need help attaching themselves to the Auto-belay.



Bouldering is a type of climbing that is performed on short walls, with thick mats to land on when you let go of the wall. Children under the age of 13 years may boulder, but require direct supervision of an adult to make sure they follow all safety rules. You do not need a partner for this type of climbing.
